Costa Rica’s dry or high season runs from mid-December up until completion of April, and our green or rainy season lasts the rest of the year. Many individuals fret that their trip will be a washout due to the fact that of rain, however, that’s not the case. Various parts of the country have different weather condition patterns, so it truly depends on upon which regions you go to and which month you’ll be traveling.

discover costa rica with our green season discountSince Costa Rica is a tropical nation, there is always a minor opportunity for rain. Nevertheless, various areas follow different weather patterns. In the popular rain forest/volcano area of Arenal (the experience capital of Costa Rica), affected by both Caribbean and Pacific weather patterns, rain is possible at any time of year, however, unlike the majority of the Pacific coast, May through November have the tendency to be drier.

For the Pacific coast beach regions, rainy season does not mean every day will bring downpours. In fact, some days it will not drizzle at all. For the many parts, the mornings are bright and sunny, followed by an hour or more of rain in the afternoon. The afternoon showers are a great time to unwind in a hammock with a book and enjoy a scrumptious cup of Costa Rican coffee. There’s nothing more relaxing.

The Central Valley and Pacific Coast end up being a lively green, the greenery is rich, and the sweet smell of misty dewdrops fills the air. Even the arid region of Guanacaste bounce back to life. Not just is the nation gorgeous throughout, this time, however, there are fewer individuals clamoring to get away the cold weather in the States.

Use our green season discount and enjoy Costa Rica
